Weil won the “Best Charity Partnership – Legal” Award for its work with The Sick Children’s Trust at the Business Charity Awards held in London on May 23, 2018.
Weil was honored for its efforts in raising £145,000 to support families with seriously ill children in hospitals as part of our two-year partnership with The Sick Children’s Trust. The main objective of the partnership was to leave the charity in a much stronger position, both financially and operationally, than before Weil’s intervention. In addition to raising a significant amount of funds, individuals in the London office have provided hundreds of hours of pro bono legal support as well as other types of advice and support.
Weil was also shortlisted for “Best Project – Legal” for its pro bono work advising Micro Rainbow International in opening the U.K.’s first-ever safe house for LGBTI refugees.
The Business Charity Awards are judged by a leading panel of experts in the charity and CSR sector, and bring together a network of innovative organizations and professionals to recognize and reward new standards of excellence and lead the way for other organizations to follow.
